Snooze & Stretch

Maisie spends many a lazy Sunday snoozing the day away, and today was no different.

Once she wakes, she doesn't just get up.  There's a process.  First...the big yawn.

She takes a look around, and notices that I am there.

"oh hey.  hi."

Then she starts to think about her next move.

And the stretching sequence begins with a modified downward dog.

Then Maisie's back half gets a good stretch, while her front legs support the effort.

Finally, just one leg needs an additional stretch.

And she's off!  

Does your dog have a post-sleep stretching routine too?  Or is this just another example of Crazy Maisie?

My pal, Roxy, does the same thing. After getting off the recliner, she often lays on the floor, stretches out her back legs and pulls herself along the floor by her front legs before she finally gets up.

Shiver doesn't so much follow that routine, but Chico pretty much does with the exception of the yawn.

Duke does the yawn and double hind leg stretch too!
